Iain Anderson's home club at the Tri-County Gun Range in Sherwood, OR, puts on a super carbine match...and not one for the faint of heart! I liked their 2 Minute Torture, essentially 3 firing positions -- a low port, kneeling and a 2nd low port -- facing 3 IPSC targets at 50 yards. The shooting positions are separated by about 10 feet, and the low ports are set so there us no "comfortable" way to shoot them...too high for prone; too low for kneeling. All you have to do is fire one shot from the first position, run to the second, fire another shot, etc. Repeat for 2 minutes...2 VERY LONG minutes! Heck of a drill. I think you'll be seeing more of Iain's training on DRTV soon.
Have to say I felt the press of time on this one...I did terribly, but I saw how I could do better...I will get in more carbine drills this year, but my focus remains cowboy, so the thrust of my training has to be cowboy. I'm amazed when people tell me they can't find a shooting sport they like...there are so many, and they're all so much fun. I'm lucky to have shot so many of them, and if there were 48 hours in a day I could fill them all up with clay pigeons, IPSC paper targets and steel.
I do think we're going to do a full court press on SG 2012 on the MGM Ironman. I spoke briefly with Travis Gibson about it at SHOT, and I'll have more details as we hammer them out.
